Rübezahl and the Bearded Women

  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

Rübezahl bestows on the village women a full beard which has a peculiar feature: as soon as it is shaved, it grows again instantaneously. So much so that hair becomes a commodity to make curtains, clothes or thatched roofs... But what Rübezahl can do, he can also undo.
